This year, our Day of Giving is going to look a little different. Join us as we honor our university's founding with not just 24 hours of giving, but 1,928 minutes of giving! This means that our celebration will start at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 27 and wrap up at 3:08 p.m. on Friday, April 28 – Numa's birthday!

Our Day of Giving spotlights some of the incredible student experiences, student support initiatives, and scholarships that make our university so special. It not only allows you to learn about how our institution uplifts and equips students for life after college – it allows you to shape their student experience, and their future.

We are proud to present the 16 initiatives that are seeking additional funding this year. They range from a Lions' first tradition, Cub Camp, to ensuring that UAFS continues to be the most affordable four-year university in Arkansas through initiatives like the Library Textbook Share program.

Numa is our Lion mascot. Numa has been a fixture of UAFS since the first iteration of our university – Fort Smith Junior College.

Our university was founded in 1928. This is our way of creating a more full day while paying homage to our founding date!
